Derrick Rose can end Bulls Soap Opera and Cold War

Derrick Rose can end Bulls Soap Opera and Cold War
Derrick Rose returns in a couple hours, and with his play he can go back to being the local-kid-done-good-story that everyone in Chicago loves. All those negative feelings in Chicago will be erased if Rose plays as dominant as he has in the preseason. You won’t have to hear “I hate THIS Derrick Rose,” but don’t hate Derrick Rose anymore. You can put to bed the question of “why didn’t you just tell us Derrick Rose?” Either way, you could have just told us. It certainly took a very long time for us to get a true straight answer regarding why he didn’t return after being medically cleared to do so. Tonight is a night for healing. It’s all about his play, and putting all these bad feelings to bed. It’s Derrick Rose being Derrick Rose; not Derrick Rose secretly having the strings pulled behind the curtain by Reggie Rose. Or Adidas. Or the combined secret cabal of the Mafia, Hip-hop industry, Skull and Bones, Free-Masons, Stone-Cutters, League of Women Voters, U.S. Naval Reserve, BlogHer Convention, NAMBLA and Crab People that joined forces to keep Derrick Rose from playing NBA basketball after being cleared by team doctors in March.

Bulls New Practice Facility: free agent recruiting boost?

Bulls New Practice Facility: free agent recruiting boost?
Today, the Chicago Bulls held an official groundbreaking ceremony for the team’s brand new practice facility. The new Chicago Bulls practice home is being built in the United Center’s Parking Lot J; east of the arena across from South Wood Street. Hopefully, this new facility and its convenient location will be a boon to the Bulls' recruiting of high profile NBA free agents. Chicago Bulls representatives and local community leaders were on hand for the historic event. The current Chicago Bulls practice facility, the 35,000-square-foot Berto Center, is located in upscale suburban Deerfield. They are selling the building, so if you have $5 million burning a whole in your pocket, it could be yours. The new $25 million, 60,000-square-foot practice facility construction project is expected to be completed in time for the 2014-15 season. It will be a tremendous upgrade; offering state of the art amenities. (for artistic renderings of the building) “The Bulls have been good neighbors for many years, and I know this new practice facility is going to be a great addition to our community,” said Alderman Walter Burnett, Jr.  “The Bulls’ leadership has worked closely with us on this process, and I commend their efforts to further economic development on the West Side of Chicago.”...
